Internal Revenue Service

As a bureau of the Department of the Treasury and as one of the world's most efficient tax administrators, the IRS role is to help the large majority of compliant taxpayers with the tax law, while ensuring that the minority who are unwilling to comply pay their fair share. (Source: www.irs.gov)

Hello everyone,

How is everyone liking the Revenue officer position? I was hired on 12/06 so-far it is okay, the learning can be overwhelming especially because this is entirely new to me. Unit 1 was full of information; I can only imagine what unit 2, 3 and 4 will be like. I keep hearing we are going to have about 80 cases in our inventory, I am hoping this will not deter me from looking for another position. But this is all new to me so obviously it will take time to learn and manage my cases. However, my OJI's are very helpful and knowledgeable. I guess...Only time will tell if I am going to like the gig. Good luck to my Dec hires.

If having a 62-72 cases as a journey level RO may make you look for another job. The time to go is now.

It’s not a Cush govt job you can sit on your ass and do.

I was curious is there any process to switch OJIs mine had not been the most helpful. I can't get any time to actually go over cases. She will with others though but she won't admit bias.

You could ask for a different OJI but there might not be anyone available. All OJIs are volunteers. And they’ve been having problems get us to volunteer.

Mostly because of virtual training. And whinney trainees that want to try and play the race card

I asked to try to switch OJIs and it seems what you said was the issue. I don't know how to take your comment on the race card. I myself am black and have experienced prejudice all the time it's exhausting. So I am a bit skeptical when someone says the race card, as I've seen it used to ignore wrongdoing.

I would greatly prefer equal treatment and just be able to do my job.

Do people lie sometimes, ask Jussie Smollett

Thanks none the less.

So do your job. But the first thing out of your mouth was ‘bias’. As soon as I hear that I tune you out. And if I were your OJI I would quit as an OJI and leave people stranded

And none of that is to say that there aren’t problems we can fix in this country.

But not everything is about race.

But I would not put myself in a position to be the subject of an EEOC. I’d resign as an OJI and go back to my case work. You know why?

Because I could.

Why wouldn't I do my job. It's not that difficult. People make the job more difficult than it is. I already talked to my Group manager and am talking to my territory manager.

I'm not even making about race even though I think that has something to do with it. As far as culture, we don't communicate well.

I just said their learning style doesn't match mine. Like I said I just want to do my job and leave. My OJI won't assist on anything. They just try to undermine me. I had to go to another OJI to get help. If you don't want to to the job, let someone else.

I did a stint at the state DOR level RO unit. The learning process was horrific & the work was even worse. What made me great at that job was the same thing that pushed me to move on. The challenge.

You have what 9 -12 cases in your inventory?

Lots of people ask other ROs with help, other OJIs students come to me and mine go to them for things.

But this job isn’t easy. You have simple cases. Stand alone DELRETS maybe some small BALDUE.. crap an experienced RO could close 75% of without actually contact the TP.

You don’t know what you don’t know. Wait to you have 70 cases and they’re real cases not the crap you’re getting assigned to get your feet wet
